Music in Bass Hall welcomes Susie Burke and David Surette for an evening of folk and acoustic music on Saturday, Oct. 6 at 7:30 p.m.

Burke and Surette have made a name for themselves as one of the finest acts on the lively New England folk scene. Together since 1988, they have built a steady following for their own blend of contemporary, traditional and original folk and acoustic music. Burke’s vocal style is at once stunning and heartfelt, and is matched by Surette’s fluid fretwork. Burke  “possesses one of the finest, purest ballad sopranos heard in folk music today,” said Scott Alarik in The Boston Globe. Surette is well-known as a top-notch accompanist in New England’s contra dance and Celtic music circles and is also in demand as a studio musician.

Burke and Surette have released five albums since 1990 on the Madrina Music label, to positive response from both critics and audiences. Their latest recording, “Waiting for the Sun,” was released in 2015.

Music in Bass Hall is produced by the Monadnock Center for History and Culture with generous sponsorship support from The Waterhouse.

Tickets are $20 ($18 for Monadnock Center members). Purchase tickets online at MonadnockCenter.org or call the Monadnock Center at 924-3235.
